Sebastian Vettel’s future team has moved to the top of the pursuers from Mercedes and Red Bull at the Turkey Expansive Prix. Not without reason, as Renault’s Ricciardo explains: “Racing Level had the faster car more often this year.”
“After the Turkey Expansive Prix, we and McLaren are the clear outsiders . I don’t mean that pessimistically. Of course: We have to catch up a few points, but there are still enough points in the three remaining races. I don’t think we’re out of reach. We can still fight. “
And it is actually tight: Between Racing Level on P3 and Ferrari on P6 of the current Formula 1 overall standings are just 24 Points. For Ricciardo’s Renault team, the backlog is 11 counter. “And with that we’re not too far away,” he says.
Changed into once could be an advantage for his racing team: the not always constant form of Racing Level. The RP 20 is mostly fast this year, says Ricciardo, “but sometimes they didn’t take as much with them as they had can achieve “.
In addition, the most recent races such as Portimao or Istanbul would distort the perception of the balance of power. “It is difficult to draw any conclusions from these special weekends,” explains Ricciardo. Bahrain will sooner show tendencies. “There we see the true speed of the cars.”
